What Our Clients Say About Our Mortgage Broker


Shelley & Brett

“Recently we decided to return to New Zealand after many years living in London and then undertook a search for a new home in Auckland.

Although the property search was largely straightforward, negotiating financing proved to be a hassle while leading a busy life offshore. However, Wendy was able to make our life so much easier by doing a superb job with looking for the best deals in New Zealand.

Thanks to her, we were presented with an excellent range of financing choices that were much better than we would have been able to negotiate for ourselves.”

Rob Ellis

“Wendy has been incredibly efficient and supportive in securing us the necessary finance for our first home in New Zealand.

She was able to negotiate with several banks and produce an outcome that we were very pleased with.”

Bruce & Amy

During the recent purchase of a property in Auckland I have used the mortgage broking services of Wendy Ryan-Kidd.

I have found Wendy to be extremely professional in her approach and the service she delivered. The outcome was successful in that we secured the mortgage.

Securing the mortgage is ultimately what matters the most but the best part of using her was that way in which this was achieved.

We are professionals based in the UK and have commitments and constraints in the hours that we work and had to manage this as well as the time difference between the two locations.

By using Wendy we were able to limit the time we had to spend in dealing with financing issues in NZ but were confident in the way they were being attended to.  It took away our need to deal with bank queries and negotiations and the general administrative process.

The bank did give us some last minute questions and requests that could have caused stress but Wendy, together with our lawyer dealt with them so we didn’t have to spent the time or hassle sorting them out.

What we appreciated most is the timely responses to our emails and queries and being kept up to date in what was going on.

In summary we would use Wendy again.  We had limited involvement in the process but were kept up to date with progress at all times with timely communication in a process that was ultimately successfully which would be my definition of why you would use a mortgage broker.
